BBQ Dutch Oven Chicken and Potatoes Recipe

Author Katie Clark


  • 3-4 large chicken breasts
  • 1 package of bacon
  • 5 small potatoes sliced into 1/4 - 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 1 lb butter optional
  • 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 26 coals


  • Make sure your coals are burning nicely. Place dutch oven on top and put bacon in dutch oven.
  • Cook bacon until cooked. Drain most of the excess grease (you want to keep probably 1/4 cup in the dutch oven)
  • Add onions, potatoes, chicken breasts, onion, butter, and BBQ sauce into the dutch oven.
  • Cover with lid and make sure there are 14 coals underneath the the dutch oven and 12 on top.
  • Cook about 35-50 minutes, or until the chicken is done.


This can be made in a slow cooker. Just precook the bacon and onions, and then throw everything in the slow cooker until the chicken is done - about 3-4 hours on high, 4-5 on low.
